Letter: Keyserling leads offshore drilling victory

As mayor of the great city of Charleston, I have the privilege of working on a regular basis with some of the finest leaders our state produces — private business people, nonprofit executives, elected officials, community volunteers and others. Every day, these men and women help tackle the toughest issues facing our state. Every day, they work hard to make a positive difference in the lives of our citizens.

Letter: Great race example out of Beaufort

David Lauderdale’ July 20 column, “Race relations: It’s up to you” is an outstanding testimonial on how to improve race relations, and it deserves to be featured in every major newspaper in America. Perhaps it should even go “viral” on social media … that ubiquitous, overtired phrase so popular today.

Master seamstress on Lady's Island

When Carla Student moved to the Lowcountry more than a decade ago to retire, little did she realize she'd not only continue working, but would end up busier than ever. That's what happens, it seems, when your master sewing skills precede you. As we found out during a recent visit to Student's industrial-level shop inside her Lady's Island home, she does a lot more than fill orders globally.
